A quick online search for shemales in Manila will yield the most popular apps and sites, which are Pina Love, Filipino Cupid, My Ladyboy Date, and My Transsexual Date. The first two specifically target the Philippines. There are a few trans hot spots in the city, but we recommend utilizing the convenience of these dating apps. Most Filipinos speak very good English. It’s normally not a problem to coordinate schedules and meet up with someone. Using these legitimate dating sites is also a way to make sure you’re meeting someone who’s looking for a relationship and not an escort. If you meet someone at a club, you can’t be sure.
Looking for trans singles online has the advantage of minimizing pre-date anxiety. It’s normal to be nervous, especially if you’re not from the Philippines or you’ve never gone out with a trans person. Especially if both are true! The country is tolerant of the trans community, so you can take your date anywhere you want. If you’re very nervous, it’s best to go to the movies or the mall and do something active together rather than sitting somewhere and talking.
At any rate, you’ll start relaxing as the date goes on. Trans people in Manila tend to be open to foreigners and they’re usually friendly. Just don’t ask any prying questions and don’t use words like shemale or tranny because they might take offense.
Another advantage of online dating is that you’ve gone through preliminary work with messaging. You know what they like, what they are looking for, what they do, what they studied, and other background info. You may have found things in common For example, you may both like swimming. You can go into the date with a lot more information so it’s not like you’re meeting for the very first time.
So, you don’t need to worry. If you’ve agreed to meet, that means the person is interested enough in you to be willing to get past the small talk stage. Eventually, you can start asking deeper questions, but expect them to ask you such questions too. If you ask down the line why they underwent surgery, for example, expect to be asked why you are interested in trans people. Be respectful of them and careful about what you say.
